steven-soderbergh-4

True to his word, Steven Soderbergh has retired from the movies for now. But it’s the last part of that phrase — “from the movies” — that’s important, because outside of the movies he’s remained as busy as ever. First, he transitioned into TV with the HBO film Behind the Candelabra. Then he jumped to a historical miniseries at Cinemax called The Knick.

Now he’s preparing to move into another medium altogether. Soderbergh is teaming up with Scott Z. Burns and Chloë Grace Moretz for The Library, an Off Broadway show being put on by New York’s The Public Theater later this year. More about his latest project after the jump.

Kick-Ass 2 (1)

If there was one upside to the first Kick-Ass 2 trailer being a bit underwhelming, it’s that the marketing has had nowhere to go but up. The film’s looked better and better with each successive trailer, and the one that hit at Comic-Con was the most badass (or kick-ass, if you want to go there) yet.

Today, we have yet another new look at the film, in the form of 10 minutes of B-roll from the Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel. The reels feature quite a few moments we haven’t seen in any of the previous promos, including some smaller character moments and some better looks at the new heroes and villains in action. Check ‘em out after the jump.

Kick-Ass 2 (3)

In the previous trailers for Kick-Ass 2, something seemed to be missing. This is most certainly a sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s film, sure. All the characters are there; the story is a continuation of the first chapter; and new heroes and villains are introduced. Yet something felt off. Writer/director Jeff Wadlow came into San Diego Comic-Con today hoping to change that.

He, along with stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse (and Chloe Grace Moretz via satellite) premiered a brand new extended trailer that expands what we’ve already seen from Kick-Ass 2. Significantly. Now the film is starting to look like the kick-ass sequel we’re hoping for.

Below, watch the new trailer and read about the Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Read More »

Chloe Grace Moretz

Chloë Grace Moretz has never been one to shy away from edgy roles, starting with her breakthrough turn as violent, foul-mouthed Hit-Girl in 2010′s Kick-Ass. Even so, her latest gig is bound to raise some eyebrows.

The 16-year-old actress will play a young prostitute in The Equalizer, Antoine Fuqua‘s big-screen adaptation of the ’80s TV series. Moretz joins Denzel Washington, who leads as a retired secret agent with a dark past. Hit the jump to find out how Moretz wound up with the part.

Carrie

A couple generations after Brian de Palma first brought it to the big screen, Stephen King‘s Carrie is getting a new cinematic interpretation this fall by director Kimberly Peirce. The first teaser trailer hit all the way back last year, and we’ve had plenty of blood-soaked posters since then, but now we finally have a full-length trailer that offers a better idea of Peirce’s updated vision.

This version of the tale stars Chloë Grace Moretz as the telekinetic teen, and Julianne Moore as her unhinged religious mother. Gabriella Wilde, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, Alex Russell, and Judy Greer also appear. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Kick-Ass 2 - Kick-Ass and The Mother Fucker

The first Kick-Ass featured but a handful of costumed heroes and villains, but Kick-Ass 2 will introduce us to a whole lot more. The Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel sees Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) joining forces with the do-gooder team Justice Forever, while Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) refashions himself The Mother Fucker and amasses an evil army of his own.

A new series of character posters offers a closer look at the three returning players, while introducing us to three new faces: Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina) and Black Death (Daniel Kaluuya) on the side of bad, and Night-Bitch (Lindy Booth) on the side of good. Check them out after the jump, but be warned that Red Mist’s new name makes them NSFW for language.
